Fete fundraising exceeds $5000
Apologies to Judy Taylor for omitting to mention the raffle winner from her Hospital Fete stall in last week’s lengthy ‘winners’ list. Ruby Whiley was the lucky person.
It would appear that takings for the fete may be more than $5,500, with some unfinished business yet to be finalised. A good result.
●●● The next event to mark on your calendars is the Anglican Christmas Craft Fair, which will be on Friday, November 23 in the Civic Hall. Admittance is $2.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get those special Christmas gifts from a variety of handmade products, local produce and speciality stalls.
Starting at 10am, there will be morning tea available, and lunch from noon.
●●● Another date to note is the Jerilderie Chamber of Commerce Christmas Bonanza to be held on Thursday, December 20.
The raffle will be drawn at 8.30pm in Luke Park, with three prizes: first a giant Christmas stocking, second a $500 voucher from Jerilderie Tyre Service and third a wheelbarrow of gifts and vouchers. Tickets are on sale around town.
●●● Congratulations to Merv and Glad Adamson who are celebrating 60 years of wedded bliss tomorrow, 15.
They were married in Narrandera.
The family will be hosting an afternoon tea at the Community Centre this Saturday, November 17, between 2pm and 4pm, to which friends are cordially invited.
●●● Adding to the news in last week’s SRN of Jerilderie’s Tidy Towns awards, our two local primary schools also received participation certificates.
The second place (overall town) award and highly commended (cultural heritage) award are on display in the window of Sneddon’s Upholstery, prior to being presented to the shire.
●●● Young James Nelson Mitchell is nearly ready to don a fireman’s outfit, after his eagle eye spotted smoke from a fire in the back yard of a Bolton St home last week.
His mother alerted the local fire brigade, and catastrophe was averted.
●●● Bookings close at the shire office on November 23 for the Sir John Monash dinner and lecture, which will be held on Friday, November 30 at 6.30pm at the Civic Hall.
Tickets are $40 a head, and bar facilities will be available.
●●● While Terry Leeds and Robyn Ford were in Albury recently they were taken on a guided tour of the Albury Wodonga Accommodation Centre, where they were shown a room which will bear the name of ‘Jerilderie’. They were quite impressed.
●●● Jerilderie Lions Club is currently finalising the 2013 Lions calendar details, and would be glad to receive any outstanding information for the calendar this week. Contact Secretary Richard Wright asap on 5886 0064.
●●● A big cheerio to Vida Dale who is on the sick list.
●●● The 2013 World Day of Prayer service, prepared by the women of France, will be on March 1, with the theme being ‘I was a stranger, and you welcomed me’. Jerilderie’s gathering will be at St Joseph’s Catholic Church, at 10am.
